Lunar landers


Jeff Bezos discussed the development of reusable lunar landers in the context of NASA's Artemis program. Specifically, he described the Mark II lander, which is designed for sustainability and reusability on the moon. Unlike the Apollo program's lunar lander that left components on the moon, the Mark II is a single-stage lander that brings enough propellant to return to lunar orbit. This design aims to reduce costs and support more affordable, sustainable lunar missions, aligning with the objective of a more permanent presence on the moon 1.
